PETKUS Ear Corn Dryer DHD

Energy Efficient Drying of Corncobs

The PETKUS Corncob Dryer DHD is a system for drying husked corncobs at harvest moisture levels. Using a double-pass reverse process, the drying chambers are connected by a central air duct system.

250-1500 t  drying capacity

High Energy Efficiency due to Dual Use of the Warm Air

In the first pass, the drying air flows into the top of the drying chamber where it gives pre-dried product its final drying pass. The slightly saturated air exits at the bottom of this chamber and passes through undried corn in a second chamber.

Gentle filling of chambers

Belt conveyors gently transport the corncobs into the drying chambers.
